Denver will close out their year against the Kansas City Chiefs at home. The two will play at Denver’s Sorts Authority Field at Mile High at 4:25 PM ET. The game may, or may not, feature many of the Denver starters. The team is still in contention for home field advantage throughout the playoffs. They may start everyone, but they could quickly build a lead and get the starters out of the game to preserve them for the playoffs. Currently the Broncos are tied with the Texans for the best record in the AFC. Their opponent, Kansas City, is tied with the Jaguars for the worst record in the league
Last week Denver beat the Browns at home 34-12, and knocked two of the team’s quarterbacks from the game. Before that game, the Browns had remained competitive in nearly every game and had won 3 of their last 4 games. Denvers mad quick work of them though and the game seemed to be over after the first quarter of play. Manning has led his team after a bit of a rough beginning and should be commended for such a smooth transition. The Broncos now find themselves as the favorite to most to win it all this year.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, are playing for something. That something is valued by many, as a loss will earn them the top pick in this year’s draft. The team could certainly use it as they have holes in nearly every aspect of their team from offense to defense and special teams. First things first, lose to Denver Sunday.
